Setlist Spoilers: Blackberry Smoke's Drive Ins & Distancing Tour

Blackberry Smoke are one of the few bands who have found themselves back on the road again amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, playing socially distanced shows only of course, some at drive-ins, and others livestream only.
“Basically, we were on top of a mountain on a stage and everybody was down at the bottom of the mountain. So, it was like this huge expanse between the stage and the audience. There were big screens, you know, drive-in screens with video playing, but it was great. It was great to play music for people.” - Charlie Starr
